MetaField value returns '???????'



I've created a metafield as MetaDataType.Text for OrderAddressMetaClass.
When I save the value in Russian for example 'Здравствуй' and later try to get the same value, EpiServer returns '??????' as value. 
Why is that and do I do something wrong when saving the text value ? 
When I do this with MetaDataType.String, it works all right.

MetaDataType.Text metafield will be stored in a Text column, so it does not support Unicode character. You should be using ShortString or LongString instead.
